The Master (The Game Maker #2) by Kresley Cole

What it’s about
Everyone fears the Master… 
Rich, irresistible politician/Mafiya boss Maksimilian Sevastyan prefers tall, obedient blondes to fulfill his…complicated desires. That is, until the icy Russian encounters a disobedient brunette whose exquisite little body threatens his legendary restraint.
Except her.
Catarina Marín was a well-off young wife until her world fell apart. Now she’s hiding out, forced to start working as an escort in Miami. Her very first client is beyond gorgeous, but when he tells her what he plans to do to her, Cat almost walks out of the door.

If pleasure is a game, play to win. 
After their mind-blowing encounter burns out of control, the lovers crave more. If they escape the deadly threats surrounding them, can Maksim overcome his past—to offer Cat his future? Only then will she tempt him with what he really wants: her, all tied up with a bow.
Dorsey’s  Review

5 Dios Mio Sexy Stars!
He’s filthy rich, impossibly handsome, and simply irresistible. He’s Russian Mafia Boss and a politician. Maksimilian (Maksim) Savastyan prefers his playthings tall, obedient, and blonde to fulfill his specific needs…..that is until the icy cold Russian meets his match in a disobedient young Latina, whose sexy little body tests his legendary restraint.
Cat is a 22 yr old student who cleans houses for the wealthy in Miami, and she was not always so desperate and poor. Cat actually comes from a good affluent family, but circumstances has her fleeing her home and now she’s just trying to survive. It’s time for her to move on (again) as soon as she gets enough money together….and she has to keep running, her life literally depends on it!!!
When a good friend, who happens to be a high class extremely expensive escort, can’t keep a date, she talks Cat into taking her place. Cat accepts with much trepidation the one time only offer, because it’s time to leave town and the money this “date” will provide will help her do that.
Maksim is definitely not a man to play with and the sweet young thing who just entered his world is nothing he is used too!! She not only definitely does not meet his strict “criteria” she actually has the gall to do the exact opposite of everything he tells her!!

“I knew I was fucked from the moment I first got close to you. He tightened his grip, I saw you had freckles on your nose and your eyes were the color of new pennies, and you smelled like pleasure itself.”

What follows is a test of wills that will make you smile, and at times chuckle. You just know these two belong together, there are a lot of misunderstandings, lack of communication skills (especially Maksim), and both of them understandably have major trust issues. Nonetheless, you’ll find yourself cheering this lost couple on!!!

“I’d never felt safer with a man…or cheaper. How could he be so tender, so praising? Then so cruel?”

I was so excited that Savastyan and Natalie, from The Professional, had cameos, and to see their story continue with their wedding. All in all, a great addition to the series, and I’m looking forward to getting Dimitri’s book next….hopefully. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!!!
